Truck Driver Cries Over 44,000 Pounds of Stolen Miller High Life

A Florida truck driver began to cry while explaining to a reporter how his truck load of Millertruck driver High Life was stolen.

Thieves stole his half full truckload of beer on last Monday at an Orange County truck stop.

Van Thomas says he’s worked extraordinarily hard to build a successful life as a truck driver. He bought a semi-truck a few weeks ago so he could start his own business as a truck driver and was devastated by the loss.

Thomas was transporting his load from Texas to Florida and was almost done when his beer was stolen.

“I don’t mean to cry about it but I’m just trying to do the best I can and make a better life,” Thomas told WFTV.

Thomas says that in all, 44,000 pounds of Miller High Life was stolen.

“It’s just so devastating to me,” said Thomas.

Luckily for Thomas, the story had a happy ending. The truck driver thought himself in an untenable position until he received a phone call from police informing him that his load of beer had been found.

“Oh, my God. That’s beautiful,” he said.

As Channel 2 Action news notes, other truck loads have gone missing in Florida:

It’s not the first time a semi has been stolen in Florida. About 180,000 eggs were stolen earlier this year in Fort Myers. A truck with Hershey chocolate was also stolen in December in Volusia County, and a truck with Slimfast was swiped near downtown Orlando.

Thomas was expected to earn $1,300 for the load he thought was lost until it reappeared.

Detectives are working to determine who stole the truck and whether the beer theft is connected to other cargo thefts in the area.
